Been a long time.

We have been neglecting our posts. He has been doing a little better day by day, so the feeling the urgency to post has been absent for a while. Just because we know how he is doing doesn't mean that the rest of you who have been following do.

Here is what we have noticed since the surgery:

He doesn't sweat as profusely during play or sleep.
He has an almost inexhaustible energy supply.
He doesn't like all the attention he has been getting from everybody asking how he is doing.

Regarding the last post, we have changed the time of day we have been giving him his medication and he seldom has headaches and I don't think we have seen him vomit for quite some time. I don't know if this is from the fact that the medication time is different (which makes sense because he now gets it with a meal) or because he is getting stronger over time. Whatever it is, we will keep doing it.

Thank you all for the continued support.

Be as thou as a little child

From Shauna:
I have been struggling a little bit with Ashton's daily headaches and vomiting.Combine that with Wyatt and his 3 baseball teams. The frustration and anger with a coach who feels winning is the ONLY important thing no matter what it teaches his players. I was talking to my mom about a situation on one on Wyatt's tournament teams, very STEAMED!! When Ashton lying on the bed after severe headaches and vomiting said, "Mom, life is good, really good!" Wow!That hit me like a ton of bricks. I have been upset over such worldly, materialistic things like my son getting to play every game and every tournament. What an insignificant thing in the grand scheme of things to worry about!!!! It took a little child to remind me that, "Mom, life is great! Really great!" No wonder we are taught to be thou as a little child! We love Ashton and all that his trials teach us. He is still soooo far from well!! Please continue to pray for us!!!! I worry about him being well enough to go back to school. We need our jobs! We need him to get well!
